Do you smoke No... She didn't ask why do you have black lips so stop assuming

You lie that it's genetic.

I lie alot in interviews but I usually do well on the jobs and then I resign.

Some interviewers can ask uneccessary questions.


No, it's not.
I went for an audition years back. The question the auditioner asked a particular fellow was, I smoke, do you smoke? the dude said yes.

The dude qualified for the program.

Another, there are some companies outside Africa continent, once you smoke, they believe you're a capable of the task, hence they see you as their own

Sorry, the job wasn’t yours

But there are ways to lighten up your lips naturally, that’s if you see the need to.

Keep searching and praying, you’ll find another job.

How do we make it light or pink naturally?

I have black lips too but I'm really working on it. Because it can be so embarrassing sometimes. Many people think I do smoke.

See how you ended up contradicting urself? Make una stop writing too much turenchi, una no go hear just to garner likes. How do you gauge the personality of a total stranger if appearance makes no meaning to you. As HR in a firm and you seek to hire a qualified accountant, make sure you hire someone with dreadlock tattoo without actually asking questions to know more about. The effect of first appearance during interview can never be overemphasize.

quote author=MISTAICEY02288 post=96837978]Most Nigerian HR officers are just highly unprofessional and stvpid... Instead of concentrating on what the applicant most likely has to offer based on his CV and how he answers the interview questions thrown at him, they will focus on looks and be asking irrelevant questions... So when a person has dark lips, automatically he's a smoker? In saner climes, job applicants go to interviews with dreadlocks, tattoos etc and the interviewers are not usually bothered about all that but instead, focus on the likely personality the person has.

The reason why they asked do you smoke, am sure you know most office space don't allow smoking and smokers always get missing sometimes in the day to take a smoke with their Tom Tom in hand outside...

That's exactly how Nigerian men profile ladies based on their dressing too but would cry a river when SARS and HR officers start profiling them based on thier appearance.

In Nigeria, maybe. In Canada, it's against the law to ask age, sexuality and some few other personal details.
